About Us

History

East Indy Trailblazers was founded in 2008 by Mark Lehman. He wanted a place for his daughter to be able to play soccer at a high school level but in a home school environment. It was her passion for the game that got the ball rolling and before long the club was founded. A call out was made to the local home school community and a team was formed. It was a rough start, with only half of the kids having previous soccer experience, but with the the help of those that had played and the dedication of a coach Lehman, the team was off and running. Through its history the club has seen many good times and great memories, including back-to-back state titles, a fourth place in the national tournament, and friendships that will last forever. We are excited to carry the torch and continue to give home school kids the opportunity to play the game of soccer.
